politician has to be sort of imbalanced. bill clinton was imbalanced. he needed those strangers. so he would spend the hours between 6:00 and 9:00 talking to people in congress, whereas president obama's basically with his family during those hours, which is sort of a balancing to do, but not necessarily good for a president. >> when working in town here in washington, in the evenings, 6:30, we want to be at the dinner table with our kids, and i want to be helping with their homework, and think that's sometimes interpreted as me not wanting to be out there slapping backs and wheeling and dealing. and it really has more to do with just the stage we are in our lives. >> if you're re-elected, your girls will be older. they'll probably have their own weekend plans, might not want to hang out with mom and dad. >> it's already starting to happen. >> do you think you might do more outreach or what you call back-slapping with members of congress? >> my hope is that getting past this election, people i will have an opportunity maybe to step back and say, you know what, the differences that d

interesting that you have him going to this region and concentrating a lot of effort here. bill clinton was here last night. he has an event that should be going off about as we speak, and there's a lot of attention here. vice president biden was here in wisconsin last week. paul ryan was here yesterday. mitt romney is going to be here tomorrow. wisconsin getting an outsized amount of attention, you could say. >> another place getting a lot of attention, virginia. that is where mitt romney earlier today gave a speech. he is going to be doing at least three different cities and towns in that state. i want you to hear this, briana. this is what his message earlier this morning. >> now, the president's proposal in a setting like this is to continue on the same road. he has a campaign slogan that was forward. i saw the signs out front. forward. i think forewarned is a better word. >> briana, yol, mitt romney has taken the gloves off. he is now going back on attack mode. do we expect that is going to play out the next five days on both sides? >> reporter: yeah. i think you already saw that here.

president who shared our beliefs and his name was bill clinton. his economic plan asked the wealthiest americans to invest more and help america, and at the same time a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. it turns out that the governor's math was just as bad back then as it is today. because by the end of president clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up, and poverty down and we had the biggest surplus in history instead of a deficit. so we know that the ideas that we believe work. we know that their ideas don't work. for most of the last decade, we tried what they want to do, and giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans that we could not afford. we tried giving insurance companies and oil companies and wall street free rein to do what they pleased, and you know what we got? falling incomes, record deficits, the slowest job growth in half a century, and an economic crisis that we have been cleaning up after for the last four years. so, we know what we want to do

to be another bush or bill clinton. >> reporter: but the race is tight, and these two know campaigning at one of the busiest places on earth is a good thing. >> here comes the storm. are you the naked cowboy? >> it's president barack hussein obama. >> if i'm elected president, the naked cowboy will get pants. >> reporter: if one naked cowboy isn't enough -- >> obama! yo mama! >> reporter: there's always room for two. it's times square, new york, a blue state, where the president is more popular than the governor. >> i can't even get anybody to take a picture with me. >> this is my town. jay-z wrote a song about that. who's gonna write a song tonight? this guy. >> reporter: kidding aside. the presidential impersonation business can be lucrative. >> what do you charge? >> for a show with four characters, up to $34,000. hey, the president's going to get a million for his speech. >> it's overwhelming, especially when you don't have proper security, you know? especially when you're not really the president, you know? i know i look like him, but -- >> it's amazing, isn't it? >> i

add, playing. the president's surrogate, bill clinton is on his way there as well. >> essentially what president obama is saying, look at me, i work with the republicans, i worked with governor christie in new jersey. >> he promised bipartisan saying he will pass what he called the down payment on fiscal sanity act which will cut nondefense spending by 5%. president obama says he has forgotten his mandate to become a post partisan leader. >> we asked them, and you, to look beyond the speeches, the attacks, and the ads, look to the record. >> romney is trying to pull out all of the stops before the election after kidrock played at his last event, and now he heads back east again for the final three days before the voter goes to the polls. wolf and kate? >> we also have new poll numbers from the critical battleground state of ohio. take a look at this, president obama has a narrow lead in this state, 50% to romney's 47%, that's within the sampling error making it essentially a dead heat. we have our political analysts here to join in. what stands out to you, gloria, from this latest

? >> barack obama, he's done a pretty good job as president, i think. he got a historic health care bill through. no democratic president since fdr or senator bog wagner right through truman, right through clinton, put it back on the agenda. obama got it done. it's extraordinary. i think it's important. i think he -- politically he's run into problems and i'm not sure he hanseled the job as a politician as well as others might have, as well as lyndon johnson certainly would have, but i give him good grades. yeah, i'm not surprised. i think that hillary clinton would have done an even better job, but i think he's done fine. >> what about you? >> yeah, i think history will be far kinder to a first-time president obama than a political divisive discussion that we're having right now, you know, you'll look back and say, okay, we got our health care, we got out of the financial cliff we're about to go over and, you know, a horrible financial situation, the economy is now growing again, we handled difficult foreign policy situations with a big of tenacity and wisdom. you know, obama, various t
